Ms Margaret Quixley
Margaret Quixley graduated from the School of Government in 2013 with a Masters in International Relations. Her degree took her all the way to the United Nations where she undertook a policy internship with the Australian Permanent Mission in New York, thanks in part to a scholarship provided by the University of Melbourne Future Generations Fund.
Upon returning in 2014, Margaret founded Young Opportunities Australia – a social enterprise connecting students and recent graduates with opportunities to make an impact. She joined the Council as an elected member in 2015 to represent young alumni and champion their voices and needs in a rapidly changing world. During her time on Council she has actively supported mentoring and appeals programs for students in need.
Over the last 10 years, Margaret has worked in the environment sector as a campaigner and advocate. In 2018, she travelled back to the US where she organised key marginal electorates during the US Midterm elections. She is presently employed as Campaigns Director with the Alliance for Gambling Reform.
